There are 2 easy ways to do this:

The more easy is
#dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86

The other one is editing your /etc/X11/XF86Config-4

in your screen section you have:

SubSection "Display"
    Depth       24
    Modes       "800x600" "640x480"

after editing you must have:

SubSection "Display"
    Depth       24
    Modes       "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
